You may not live in the Sierra Nevada mountains of California like me, but with the price of gold as high as it is, have you considered adding “panning for gold” to your business strategy?

Have a good Saturday everyone.

SF Gate:

Gold nuggets are sprouting like weeds on streams in the Sierra Nevada foothills of California. High water from melting snow is scouring feeder creeks this month that haven’t been flushed clean for years.

The flushing power can dislodge gold caught for eons in deep pockets and under rocks and propel it downstream. Eventually the weight of the gold causes it to fall to the stream bottom, often jamming between rocks in V-wedge crevices. There it waits for you.

At more than $1,500 an ounce, this isn’t a kids’ game. Gold panning can yield gold flakes amid a layer of black sand. But sniping – which any youngster can manage – can get you nuggets.
